What's the last concert you bought tickets to?

A Foo Fighters tribute band playing locally. Good night out.

Before that - my old Uni Tutor playing in Cambridge and that must have been two years ago.

These days, going to a concert means putting my guitar on the back seat of the car and making sure I get to soundcheck on time

I've just remembered two more recent gigs than 1981: - I saw Heinz Holliger play Mozart's oboe concerto at the Barbican in about 1994.
And the last gig was the best I've ever been to - Tiger Lillies doing Shockheaded Peter in Hammersmith, I think it was. About 15 years ago?

I just bought tickets to see Berta Rojas, at Westmoreland Congregational Church, in Bethesda, MD., on February 23 (part of the Marlow Guitar series. I'd like to go to all six concerts, but it's about a six hour drive.) ......and tickets to see, "Seldom Scene" on Feb. 11, in Chapel Hill, NC. :)

I just called the box office to get tickets to, "International Guitar Night," at ECU (part of the S Rudolph Alexander Performing Arts Series.....www.ecu.edu/srapas)......(East Carolina University is in Greenville, NC) ....but the tickets have not gone on sale yet. The guy I spoke with at the box office said he'd put me on the list.....said I was the first name....and call me when the tickets were on sale.

Just bought tickets and paid for rooms at a music festival sponsored by the bluegrass band, "Balsam Range." It's called, "The Art of Music Festival, " and it will be held at Lake Junaluska Conference Center on Nov. 30 & Dec. 1. I'm not sure of the lineup, but, if it's anything like last years, it will be a good weekend! They have workshops on Saturday, but I didn't attend any of them last year......my wife and I spent the day at Biltmore House instead. It had been decorated for Christmas, and was amazing! Lake Junaluska is about 25 miles from Asheville, and just a few miles from Maggie Valley, so there's a plenty to do when in the area.

Rush - 'Snakes & Arrows' tour
I don't get out much to concerts - the traffic, finding parking, seats, I'm short and the guy in front is always too tall. I find cds on my very spiffy stereo fit the bill for me. And I order concert videos. You can always pause to use the biffy when necessary and make popcorn. Likewise, I don't go to films - I wait until they're on-demand.

Joshua Bell solo concert at Hill Auditorium.
We saw him in Tacoma a couple years back. He was gracious enough to stay in the lobby for autographs after the show and he signed a copy of 'The Red Violin' (VHS) for us. Me and a friend saw Eric Burdon and his band also in Tacoma last year. I got lucky and was able to chat a little with the band after the show. I was hoping Eric could sign a copy of his book 'I Used To Be An Animal, Bit I'm Alright Now.' They told me he had already taken off to fly back to Europe.
Help!
